Synopsis


Dope
Rick Famuyiwa's coming-of-age film Dope follows Malcolm a teenager growing up in a rough section of California. He's obsessed with '90s hip-hop, and is teased mercilessly for his commitment to dressing like the rappers from that era. Malcolm is a smart kid with dreams of getting into an Ivy League school. One night he attends a party in honor of a local drug dealer, and what transpires is a wild night for Malcolm and his friends. Dope screened at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    “Dope” is not the movie that you probably expect when hearing the title. I want to stress that. The word itself has negative connotations (with most thinking immediately of drugs when they hear it), and though it certainly deals with things of that sort, it isn’t really that simple. The few definitions of the word are addressed at the beginning of the film, most notably as a slang term referring to something that is “very good”. This definition, my favorite of the few, seems to capture the movie in the best lig

    A different kind of coming of age story

    I like the main character am from Inglewood, CA. but grow up in different cities around the Southern, CA area. I was not a nerd like the main character but not a thug either. In reality most of the kids I grow up with were somewhere in between, and like the main character it was by chance or by circumstance that we made the decisions that changed our lives.This is a great coming of age movie from a different perspective that you are use to seeing in Hollywood movies, with lots of laughs and a great performance from the main character.

    "Dope" shows the constant struggles of being a moral teenager engulfed in a society driven by illegal behavior and surrounded by peers who are nudging you onto a more dangerous pathway than on which you'd like to travel. People with choices and decisions to make that are often times as big or as impacting as the ones adults make. The difference is, however, adults come equipped with life experiences where teenagers generally come equipped with their own instincts and peer pressure in their decision-making.

    I was in love with this movie when it came out in theaters and I couldn't wait for the movie to be released on Blu-Ray. This movie follows three kids from South Central LA trying to stay away from the drug/gang life. Things go terribly wrong when they attend a drug dealer's party and unexpectedly find a ton of ecstasy in one of their backpacks. It has drama, it has comedy, it has wit, and it has adventure. And if you grew up or a huge fan of 90's culture, you won't be disappointed.

    Awesome coming of age story starring written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa (The Wood, Brown Sugar). The movie stars Shameik Moore playing Malcom, a college bound 90s geek who feels trapped by his surroundings. Social norms, stereotypes, and his own expectations have him feeling like he doesn't fit in any where. All of that changes one day after a local drug dealer's bday party goes awry. Very funny, shot wonderfully, with an awesome 90s soundtrack. A must see.

    It's an entertaining movie about a high school teen who is trying to get himself accepted into Harvard. I thought some of the plot was a little exaggerated, but I really enjoyed the jokes throughout the movie. Blake Anderson is funny. He's supposed to be around the same age as these kids but he's at least 12 years older. Strange casting.

    I just rewatched this movie and it was just as good, and better, than the first time I saw it. This movie pairs well with a previous one from this director, The Wood. Really good story too.

    Good script and direction. Good characters, and Shameik Moore gives a great and memorable performance. Kiersey Clemons is hilarious, she gets some excellent one-liners. Charismatic cast in general. Despite its possibly super dark subject matter, it's a really fun movie.
